What You'll Get

Itinerary

Day 1: Queenstown – Milford Sound – Te Anau

Stop At: Milford Sound, Fiordland National Park New Zealand
Get an early start leaving Queenstown as you travel through Te Anau to the Southern Alps. Your coach ride continues along the picturesque Eglinton Valley, one of New Zealand’s few glacier valleys that is accessible by road, as you enjoy great views from the vehicle's glass roof. Stop to snap photos of the Mirror Lakes, then drive to The Chasm, where you take a short walk over footbridges that span several powerful waterfalls and rapids. The 3.5-hour drive by comfortable coach includes plenty of stops for photos and rest breaks.

Continue to Milford Sound, the region that Rudyard Kipling referred to as the 'Eighth Wonder of the World.' Carved by an enormous glacier in the last ice age, Milford Sound shimmers with towering mountains, rushing waterfalls and rich marine and bird life. Enjoy your 2-hour boat cruise aboard a modern catamaran with large viewing windows, outdoor decks, and warm indoor seating. Listen to informative commentary from your captain as you glide through the incredible scenery; keep an eye out for the seals, penguins, and dolphins that inhabit the icy waters. At the pinnacle of the sound, marvel at Mitre Peak, which rises to a height of 5,550 feet (1,692 meters) above sea level.
